My husband and I just stayed at Thompsonite Beach Inn for the third time in 2 years. Slightly off the beaten track, yet easily accessible to hiking, restaurants--a hidden gem on the North Shore! Unpretentious, nice clean rooms on the Lake Superior shoreline--leave your windows open and let the waves lull you to sleep! The owners, Lee and Scott are... More

We were extremely pleased with our two nights at Thomsonite Beach Inn & Suites! We stayed in Unit #9. It was very peaceful and quiet. View was the best, big windows overlooking the lawn and lake. We got there a little before checkin but that was no problem. We had frozen fish that we needed kept in freezer so owners... More

We were only able to stay one night at the Thomsonite Beach Inn and Suites but wish we had been able to stay much longer. The room we had was absolutely immaculate; neat as a pin. Had a comfortable queen bed in the bedroom and a Murphy bed in the living room. Very comfortable rocking chairs in the living area.... More

These cabins are located right on the lake with plenty of room to roam and explore. Close to Grand Marais and the Gun Flint so it was easy to hike all day and return to this location for a hot shower and a comfortable bed. the only reason for giving this a 4 rating instead of a 5 rating is...

We loved our time at the Thompsonite Inn! It is a small,comfortable Inn, run by a very nice family that went out of their way to make us feel at home. (Even brought an extra blanket to our room one chilly night.) It is totally quiet and feels remote, even thought its just off the highway. The grounds are wonderful,... More

We stayed at Thomsonite Beach for a week in early June and loved every part of our stay. Lee and Scott made sure our every need was met, and even anticipated a few and took care of those without ever being asked.
